"A well-written and -illustrated work, recommended for all college libraries. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty."
This book is very detailed and offers a great insight into the part stats has to play in research. While it bolstered my knowledge in delivering stats, this book perhaps goes beyond most undergraduate students' understanding in sport studies. However, for MSc students this is a great book.
The advantage of this book is being concise. It has the right size for a course book and has a manageable page number (230, which is almost half of the similar books). Although it does not employ a sense of humour, similar to some other books in the field, it is easily readable. However, although it has been re-printed in 2008, it has not been updated since 2002, and therefore, it is based on an outdated version of SPSS (version 10).
